The fair has become a traditional meeting place for representatives of various companies from 17 countries both near and far. Over 900 enterprises took part in the exhibition.

In addition, AgroCentre customers can acquire machinery on credit via Rosselkhozbank and SberBank as well as by financial leasing through MKB-Leasing Establishment, Deutsche Leasing Vostok, and De Lage Lander (DLL).
